Practical amp for travel and more

Hans Joachim W., 14.11.2009
I have the bass buddy now for about 2 years. I use it mainly when traveling as an exercise amp (with headphones). It is also available as a pre-amp, if you want to go directly into the PA. The output signal is extremely powerful.

Very handy is that one can use the AUX socket an external signal from the MP3 player or PC to grind and in the volume can regulate. The device makes a really first-class impression and has never had problems with me. The integrated compressor works rather cautious, but very clean. The sound is - typically Phil Jones - extremely dry, clear and hifi-like.

This is perhaps too sterile, but ideal for double bass or jazz. Unfortunately, gain and volume can not be controlled separately, so there is no way to set tweaked sounds. This, however, corresponds to the manufacturer's philosophy.

The Bassbuddy runs a few hours on battery power (2 x 9V), but usually I use it with the power supply (110 and 220 V, which is practical because I am often in the USA). Nice is the standard transfer bag.

Conclusion: The device is not necessarily cheap, and in its kind something special, but really well done.

The holy gral!

Fred182, 21.01.2014
What a pleasure to finally have a bass amp that is versatile! Phil jones made in the heavy despite his size. Phil Jones can also use it as a 10watts amp, plug his rhythm box or mp3 and manage the volume etc .... Personally I did not know this brand before The purchase and seen all that can be done with have can not be in love with this little jewelry, I strongly advise all bass players who play in apartments or to go to the studio.
